So, if Congress is putting at least a temporary hold on earmarks, why should voters of District 10 re-elect Bill Young?
According to the St. Petersburg Times, the Pinellas County lawmaker and veteran defense appropriator has directed hundreds of millions in earmarks to military contractors in the Tampa Bay area, in addition to public projects.
In a nutshell, the number one reason to re-elect Bill Young is that he brings home the bacon. But if pork’s off the menu, doesn’t the rationale for keeping Young deserve a second look?
Unfortunately, my boy Charlie Justice has been draggin’ ass on the campaign trail, empowering his slurp Mitch Kates to rake the campaign for far too much money. That’s a shame because Justice is a good man and a solid candidate. Still, because of the lack of momentum behind his campaign, Justice has yet to draw a lot of interest from the DC crowd that determines which races get prioritized.
Senator Justice, this is your opening. Either put the right people in place and take advantage of this opportunity or enjoy your last year in eleted office. span class=”fullpost”>
